“Cautionary Tales”3823e043-8b2e-410a-ba84-73437e990147

“I love a good story. Stories teach us, inspire us and give meaning to our lives. I have been shaped by books I have read and movies I have watched: influenced by cautionary tales as a child, molded by the characters that still run away with my imagination……My paintings and sculpture are exaggerations of ideas that repeat themselves in the stories and characters that influence and shape all of our lives.”

“The Box Project”
By: Erica Carbrey

Eric Carbrey is from Wichita and was drawn to art in the fall of 1991. A rivalry between brothers began by seeing who could better draw video game characters. Today, he creates geometric art that feels as if the shapes are growing into their current frozen positions. Carbrey strives to create complexity with simplicity and at the same time simplicity with complexity.

“I enjoy being challenged by my work. I experience great delight in the physical demands of painting, and the processes of creating,” said Carbrey, who crafts his paintings by playing with opposites. “its rhythm and rhyme, up and down, a flow in and out of itself. The union of calm and chaos create harmony”.

“It is my hope that these paintings construct a rich evocative visual experience. My work combines color and shape, with compositional structure and illusion of space formulating works that are both pleasing and challenging to the eye.”

Tuesday, November 3
Noon to 1 p.m.
An Art for Lunch question answer session with the artist will be held Tuesday November 3 from 12 to 1p.m. in the Steckline Fine Arts Gallery. A light lunch will be served on a first-come, first-serve basis. Guests can also bring their lunch. The event is free and open to the public.

The Steckline Gallery is located inside the De Mattias Fine Arts Center on the Newman campus, 3100 McCormick. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or by appointment. For more information, call 316-942-4291, ext. 2199.
